No--you just need to figure out where to build new bookcases. I am packing the cookbooks to move them back to the city...don't know where I'll put them there!

I also have some small notebooks for handwritten recipes I have liked the look of, and several large ring binder files with plastic envelopes to hold all the recipes cut from Newspapers, magazines. etc.

When it is a horrible day I just pick up a few at random, browse through them and feel much, much better.
How is the new book of middle eastern food? I have her book on jewish cooking which is mostly sephardi. I wonder if they overlap. How is arabaseque? She is my fav author. I have Jewish cooking and the food of Spain by her

I prefer Arabesque slightly, It has sections on Morocco, Turkey and the Lebanon, the New Middle Eastern isn't divided into separate countries but has recipes from all of the Middle East, with sections on different ingredients. They do overlap but as I just love cookery books this doesn't matter to me that much. As a relative newcomer I'm not sure how far we can digress from the subject, so maybe a new subject, Middle Eastern and North African food? I'd love to discuss it in more detail.

I am up to about 30-35 cookbooks depending on if you count a few my mom gave me that I will probably give back one day. My husband says to buy as many as I like as he enjoys all the things I cook from them.

It means..."Not ANOTHER cookbook!!!"

I think I am six or ten past the last time I posted on this thread.

I had to get serious about going through the magazines I had saved to make room for the cookbooks. Then I got tired of the childish stickers on my recipe box, so I removed all of them and put different childish stickers on...
